This piece was created when I received news that my sister was getting divorced and was going to be moving to a remote location in Oklahoma and that her soon-to-be ex-husband – who had custody of my beloved niece – was turning her against our family. The western font represents not only the ex-husband but my sister’s future on a decidedly rural and isolated ranch. The “old gold” cigarette add underneath symbolized a slow painful death through a daily dose of poison in a life without my niece.
